Immersed in greenery
The Casa Adea farmhouse , a tourist activity of the Green Sun farm , is located in the southernmost stretch of the Brescian alpine system in a splendid hilly area more than three hundred meters high. The hill originates from the lifting and corrugation of the earth’s crust produced by the collision between the great plates of ancient Africa and ancient Europe which took place about 130 million years ago. The rocks present were originally sediments deposited in the sea which for millions of years was present in the area occupied by the Alps and are made up of limestone rich in flint and marl deriving from marine mud.
